He Never Promised A Bed Of Roses
I spend two thirds of my life in a bed or hot tub due to this failing body of mine. It appears that even with the best of meds solid sleep is rarely found. My entire body throbs constantly and it gets very old fighting with it. However, the devil is crazy if he thinks I’m gonna give up the fight.
We all go through difficult tests and seasons when we feel like giving up. Satan is hoping these seasons take us off the course God has planned for us. God is is hoping we stay the course learning to trust Him no matter the season. Satan is hoping we let these times define us. Jesus hopes we allow God to refine us.
Through tears, heartache, suffering, and moments you just don’t feel you can take anymore. Fix your eyes on Jesus who endured hardship, stayed God’s course, and won the victory. We too if we stay the course and keep the faith will overcome all that comes our way. For even when we can’t carry on Jesus will carry us.
Jesus said, “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
